The city has introduced Passport, a
parking app that allows drivers to pay for metered parking from the convenience
of their phones. Rather than paying at the meter, users can purchase parking
securely in the app, monitor their session, and extend time remotely.
Users can also preload funds onto
their Passport Wallet for payment. This is especially convenient for frequent
parkers, allowing for an even quicker payment process.
The app is now available at
on-street metered parking where Passport signage is located. Passport signage
will instruct users to download and get started with the app.
"We’re excited to offer this
industry-leading technology to our residents and visitors in Providence. The
City of Providence is committed to providing the most user-friendly parking
experience possible, and we believe that the addition of Passport’s app will do
just that," said Mayor Jorge Elorza. "Users will have the flexibility
to manage their parking from their phones, offering easier payment options and
notifications of meter expiration.”
Signage and labels are already
All streets with meters will be
included in the program and the roll out will continue through the spring.
Residents and visitors should keep an eye out for signage indicating the App is
activated on their street.
Passport is the leading mobile
parking app provider across North America, serving large cities like Boston,
Chicago, Toronto, and Detroit.
